Le Samouraï (The Godson) Reviews

Cold, masterly, without pathos, and not even particularly sympathetic; it has the noble structure of accuracy.

Delon's inscrutable presence adds to an unnerving atmosphere of anticipation. You feel that something bad could come crashing into the frame at any second. And you would be right.

[Melville's] style remains haunting and elegantly spare, just right for the kind of hit man who lives in silence, in bare and colorless surroundings, with a lonely caged bird.

Le samourai expresses a kind of loneliness to be sure, but it's that of a teenage male dreaming about Hollywood movies and their accoutrements -- penthouse apartments, acerbic cops, melancholy city streets, smoky card games, fancy jazz nightclubs.

One of the pleasures of Le Samourai is to realize how complicated the plot has grown, in its flat, deadpan way.

To each his own. Filmmakers as diverse as Quentin Tarantino and Paul Schrader were influenced by Melville, and Hong Kong action director John Woo calls the film 'the closest to a perfect movie that I have ever seen.'

It combines stylish direction, an intelligent script, first-rate performances, and overpowering atmosphere into one of the most tense and absorbing thrillers ever to reach the screen.

Melville is much more interested in procedures than action. The film is so stripped down that we learn as much as we need to know about Jef in the film's first 15 minutes.
